7 Reasons You Don't Need A Fitness Personal Trainer

Aug 17, 2007
This is a tongue in cheek article about fitness instructors and you.

If you do a search for fitness personal trainers on the internet, you will come across many health and fitness websites extolling the virtues of why you should hire a personal trainer to achieve your health and fitness objectives. Well, in reality, you don't need to hire any personal trainers. Huh?

If you are reading this article of which you are doing now, you are probably surprised to find why a fitness personal trainer like me is telling you that you don't need one. You will probably think that I am crazy. Perhaps I am. Well, read on and you may discover that I am not as crazy as you think after all.

1) You don't need a fitness personal trainer because you hated the commitment that comes with it. Anyway, you have been working out for many years without any commitment to anyone, even to yourself and that is why, you only workout as and when you are pleased. Well, you do concede that the results you get are never satisfactory and of course you are frustrated with your results.

But what the heck, you prefer to waste time, waste gym membership fees and enjoy getting frustrated. You are of course entitled to your liberty.

2) You don't need a fitness personal trainer because you hated someone to push and encourage you so that you can achieve your health and fitness goals much faster.

Your idea of going to the gym is to socialize and to chat up girls. So why should you subject yourself to a regimen planned by a personal trainer who can sculpt your body to be more attractive and desirable to the girls that you are chatting up?

Your beer belly will do just fine. Girls just love big tummies, you justified to yourself. So who needs a flat tummy with those ugly six pack abs? You certainly don't.

3) You don't need a fitness instructor because you believe in the concept of 'no pain no gain.' So if you exercise using the wrong form and techniques resulting in painful or even worse, permanent injuries, well, that is pain isn't it? So therefore with pain, there will be gains. Hmmm, such profound reasoning that even the great philosopher Confucius will be confused if he is still alive eh?

4) You don't need a fitness personal trainer because you pay your income taxes. So without someone to guide and train you scientifically, you will not lose much body and visceral fat, so you will still have that high blood pressure, that potential stroke or heart attack, so that you will eventually land up in a government subsidized hospital and so that some of the taxes which you have paid will be utilized by yourself.

That is great clever thinking eh? You are glad that even without a PHD in business study, you can figure out how to get a wonderful return of investments from your taxes paid

5) You don't need a fitness personal trainer because you believe in conforming to the society. After all, most people in your country are overweight and not exactly glowing with good health, then why should you be otherwise? You are delighted to be like most people, obese and unhealthy. Hey, you are a good team player aren't you?

6) You don't need a fitness personal trainer because you can spy on people who hired personal trainers in your gym. You eavesdrop on their trainers giving instructions and then you secretly work out according to what you have overheard not realizing that each and everyone is different and workout plans are to be tailored to each individual condition factoring in other issues like lifestyle, dietary habits and even the choice of exercises.

You prefer to 'monkey see, monkey do' and eventually falling painfully off the tree. Or should I say falling off the Empire State Building where the mighty King Kong fell?

7) The most compelling reason why you don't need a fitness personal trainer is because you have downloaded my 'Burn Fat Build Muscles Fast' e-books and now you have a personal trainer in your hands.

Whoever said that you need to hire fitness personal trainers in order to own a lean mean attractive muscular body that only others can dream of must be crazy, don't you agree?
